Media Specialist Declared a Critical Need Area

According to Assistant Superintendent of Schools Andy Corey, the Department of Education conducts a yearly critical shortage survey regarding teaching areas where it has become difficult for the state and local districts to attract candidates.
Corey told the school board at its Tuesday, Sept. 3 meeting that the only such area in Londonderry is Library Media Specialist or Librarian.

During the 2011-12 academic year, the district advertised for a Library Media Specialist on three separate occasions, and received a minimal number of qualified applicants.
